Thailand’s biggest real estate event returns for a 10th historic year in 2015 with a glittering black-tie gala dinner and awards ceremony at the Plaza Athenee hotel on Wednesday, 16 September.

Organised by Ensign Media, the Thailand Property Awards aims to showcase the finest developments in the Kingdom.  Properties from Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Phuket, Hua Hin, Khao Yai, Phang Nga, Krabi and Samui will all be rewarded at the prestigious gala dinner.

“The enormous success of the Thailand Property Awards over the past decade is a testament to the highest standards established by the award-winning developments and companies that have participated since 2006,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO of Ensign Media.  “The Awards continue to set the benchmark of quality and credibility by which the region’s best real estate is measured.”

With entries closing on May 15, nominations from the general public and real estate industry have been flooding in since the start of the year and will now be judged by the independent panel of judges, supported by site inspection teams from around the country and supervised by Paul Ashburn, managing partner of BDO International.

“We have clearly demonstrated over the years that it is worthwhile putting an extra effort into our entry and judging processes, as that leads to highly credible winners and public recognition that the shortlisted properties truly do represent the best of the best,” said Blackburn.  “The awards are free to enter and decided by a truly independent panel, which ensures only the best of the best are recognised and rewarded.’

A total of 24 categories will recognise the Kingdom’s most exceptional projects this year.  Best Developer and Best Luxury Condo Development (Bangkok) – won last year by Major Development PCL, and PACE Development’s The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok, respectively – will undoubtedly be two of the most hotly contested categories in 2015.

Special recognition will also be given to the developer that has exhibited excellence in corporate social responsibility in the past year.

The winners will be automatically eligible to compete in the South East Asia Property Awards 2015 grand final, which takes place on Thursday, 15 October at Singapore’s Shangri-La Hotel.

The Property Report Real Estate Personality of the Year – chosen by the editors of the region’s leading luxury real estate, architecture and design publication – will be given to the most influential figure in Thailand’s property sector from the last year and is the only award not chosen by the judging panel.
